Not saying untrue, but china had a lot of scam ico's. Some see the pullback as an attempt to save the name of legit coins and make it harder for trash coins to enter the market. Some see the move as manipulation by the gov to purchase more. Either way, chaos.

I've been following crypto for just a bit. Bought at a unlucky time. Bought at dips and am doing fine mostly (neo having a hard time bouncing back).

I didn't know this thread was here. Just happened upon it. Lots if helpful info here. Thanks everyone.

Mr. Dimon added that he would fire any employee who traded Bitcoin. But he didn’t say how he would deal with an employee who publicly identifies a $70 billion fraud — then doesn’t find a way to make a dime out of it.
That bothers me.

That is what is pushing me towards Ethereum, if history has shown us anything these bankers aren't going to sit back and let someone else come onto their turf.

Interesting read, liked his thought provoking quote around life changing events, “Remember, bubbles happen around things that fundamentally change the way we live,” he said. “The railroad bubble. Railroads really fundamentally changed the way we lived. The internet bubble changed the way we live. When I look forward five, 10 years, the possibilities really get your animal spirits going.”

SALT completed their SEC audit and is now live to withdraw/ buy more. The $20 tier this morning is already gone and now at $22.50 :pint: :pint:

The more I think about it and hear about different examples, the more I think this could really be huge.
